Solid Snake (ソリッド・スネーク, Soriddo Sunēku) is a character appearing in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Instead of using guns like in the real games, he'll be using explosives and the cardboard box used in the trailer. He is the first third-party character to appear in any Super Smash Bros. game. Based on the most recently released trailer, Snake will have an RPG (Rocket Propelled Grenade) that he will use during gameplay. Other footage hints at a thrown grenade attack.
Snake has been seen using physical moves that look similar to those of Captain Falcon.
Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear Solid, begged Sakurai to include Snake in SSBM, but it was too late to do it at that time.
